The best course so far. I feel like this course actually showed us things we would be doing day to day in the workplace. It's nice to problem solve since that will probably be a big chunk of the job.

This chapter is very interesting since describes a lot of the things that we have at the office running on the background but we never understood well. The material is well put together, congrats.

Nice introduction to both open source LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory services, as well as other IT infrastructure ideas. Good presentation and useful lab exercises!

A good intro, but this course needs a Qwiklab to practice what we've learned. (Ideally, an ungraded one, given the rampant problems with the labs in the other courses.)

Sometimes it was rather boring and kind of lack practical exercises/labs, but overall is quite useful, at least it can give your suggestions on where to dig further.

Tough but rewarding. A little more time spent on the larger lessons would have been appreciated, you turn over teaching duties to supplemental reading too often.

After I completed this course I want to share my experience to all users that it's totally Theorical course no practical. So, it is some kind of boring course.

The course is good but is not so much keeping up with the technology, some things explained here are now not used at all and their alternatives are available.

definitely harder than the others, some of it was dull but very informative. SYSAdmins have a very hard job and they deserve what they're paid for doing so

This was challenging, I liked the active directory and LDAP implementation part. Great work by the instructor to explain the concepts. And also great demos.

A bit too monotone and sometimes the labs are made of complex stuff and commands never learned in the course but everything is explained while doing the lab

Good material. The grading system was not like the last 3 courses and was filled with trick questions/answers which I found was more deterring then needed.

Good course, a little dull in places. Some of the tasks seem to be under development. However, the content is very important for IT in a business setting.

This course has really exposed me to many unknown things in the IT world, I will explore more since some of the lessons were very challenging. Thank you

The course could have been a little more strict. Looking for help on the web is almost like cheating. I think you guys need to update this Certificate(s)

It was interesting but a bit tedious at times. I've never been a big fan of multiple-choice question quizzes, I enjoyed the labs in the last course more.

Overall it was good and useful course but sometimes instructor speaks so quickly and gives lots of material in a seconds so I hardly can to follow.

Maybe use more examples in this course. Videos were supper long. Honestly I would suggest to make it simpler to understand. To many big words. (=

It was a very important course. I did not give the five star because I think need to review the Active Directory explanation and labs. Thank you

Some parts were really informative and useful. Others felt more like they were throwing so much information at you but never really defining it.

Awesome to learn all about it from here. But include some things about the active directories.Its basically a little bit struggle for everyone.

It was a good experience to learn about the the job that an System Administrator has to do and the Qwiklabs Lab made it even more exciting. :D

Great course really learned a lot and i believe this course closes resembles the day to to day responsibilities of an IT support specialist.

The supplemental reading should contain some more content rather than just links. Some notes outlining the important topics could be handy.
